the capable and is gathering information on every phone call made in america, you're concerned how that could be used not just by the government but by individuals working for the government, and by somebody who all of a sudden may decide to politically target people. that's a legitimate concern. so, again, i'm not -- i don't think we should trivialize the debate beyond the personalities involved. it's a very significant balancing act. these are important programs. we have to be able to do some of this and figure out how to do it in a way that americans have more conversation, and a lot of that starts by leadership. when you have reports that the irs targeted americans that undermines the confidence. >> neil: up sos like you're slightly more to the side of the libertarian thinking on this. protect us bus not at the expense of going too far. >> i think we have to be able to do both. >> neil: i understand that. the reason why i even mention it is that there's been some shifting on your part, or so it would appear, on a couple of key issues, from immigration reform to obamacare and maybe defundi
to ramadan. >> why do they have affiliates going after america? what's the hallmark that al qaeda could be behind the threats? >> they have shown the desire and ability to go after u.s. targets abroad. they were behind the plot that the cia thwarted a year ago. they're also believed to be behind those cargo packages that were shipped to chicago synagogues with exemployeesive material. that group has shown the ability and desire to attack targets overseas. that's what the intelligence is pointing. >> jill, what can people do? how can they protect themselves sns. >> they have to be very ware of their surroundings. they have to know that the american embassieembassies, the post-closures. you can go on to the website of the state department and find them. those embassies and consulates will be closed. in emergencies they might be able to provide something but you're not going to ghet there. one of the reasons the state department is pointing out is they do not want people and this would be foreign nationals standing in line waiting to get visas. it could be an invitation for a potential att
